    It helps that I'm a ROOTED rep!

    Or there might be another method that doesn't require a PC at all.

    But I'd go with the first option, personally. And Droid Does!! is right (something you won't hear someone on this forum say very often about a Verizon Rep), the file you tried to flash is the wrong one. You put a 2.1 kernel on your 2.2 phone. It's not going to work really well. Can you get into recovery now?

    If you like my work or I have helped you out and you would like to help me keep the lights on, it is greatly appreciated!!

    So im not sure how I will be able to install a kernel. Sorry for my noobishness but the last two times I rooted I didnt really explore custom roms or kernals or anything. I would greatly appreciate anything that I can do just to get my phone functioning properly. Honestly at this point I dont care what version of android or Rom is on the phone as long as it is stable.

    Okay. Download this file. Name it update.zip -- and make sure it's not update.zip.zip -- by renaming it update and seeing if you get a warning in Windows about changing the file extension. If you do, name it update.zip, but if you don't, leave it as update. Place it on the root of your SD card (more on that in a second), then allow update.zip installation and then install update.zip (deprecated).

    With the phone connected to your PC, from recovery, move to mount options using the D-pad, remembering everything is in portrait mode. Click the middle of the d-pad and then select "Enable USB Mass Storage". It will allow you to transfer files to/from your Droid. Copy the .zip to the root of your SD card and then disable the mass storage. Hit the delete key or the power button on your Droid, move down to Install, then allow/install the .zip. Once it finishes you'll want to hit the del key or the power button again, highlight reboot phone, and then reboot. It should boot into the OS normally at this point.

    My phone isnt current recognizing the SD card and I dont think that I can get into the market to download a file explorer to try and put the kernal on the sd card.

    I linked you to a kernel and gave you instructions on how to get it onto your phone.

    I have the kernal, But I have two issues. First is that windows isnt showing the phone so I cant open the files this way to try and place in root of the file, and secondly which may or may not be related to the other problem is that I would put it on my sd card using a file exsplorer but I dont have one anymore and my phone isnt recognizing my sd card when I turn it on.

    Check your computer to see if the SD card is now visible in the "my computer" or the mac equivalent.
